Through the Windowpane
“For now we see in a mirror, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part;
but then shall I know fully even as also I was fully known.”
1 Corinthians 13:12
So Grandpa informs me that he will be leaving us soon to “go up yonder.”
“Yeah, right, ” I say.
He just feels puny from his flu shot, that’s all. Once he realizes why he’s so tired today, he starts working on his book again.
Wow, that was a real close call, again! He’s predicted he’s dying about eight times in the last two years.
(Grandpa lived five years more)
“Make a man out of the sissy,” he says in an Austrian accent. “He has to keep up his strength!”
Quote of the day: As Robert stumbled into Grandpa’s room this morning to get him up at 9:00 a.m. (which we have consistently been doing since August), Grandpa said, “Eric used to get me up at 8:30!”
“Well, Dorothy,” Robert replied, “You aren’t in Kansas, anymore!”
Score one for the daughter! I just brought Grandpa (the famous 91-year-old author) a cup of coffee and a blueberry muffin.
He says, “Wow!” and points to the computer.
One of the fictional characters in his story had just served coffee and a sweet roll. Talk about perfect timing! His tummy must have been dictating those prose.
